Just wondering if anyone else has experience with these rods. Last spring, we found a Rhino Glowtip, heavy action rod with an Abu 6500C3 reel along the river bank after the water level had dropped. After cleaning off the barnacles and everything, the reel works fine, and my grandson is using the combo. The rod seems to be pretty strong, and feels good. I only own one other rhino, a casting rod/reel combo someone gave me as a gift. It is a lighter duty combo that I use for smaller fish, but I have caught some really big fish on it, including a spinner shark about 5' long.
